When: 7 p.m.

Where: Resch Center (7,430); Ashwaubenon.

Radio: WDUZ (1400 AM and 107.5 FM; www.thefan1075.com).

Internet streaming video: www.HorizonLeague.org.

Coaches: UWGB - Brian Wardle (41-44, third season); Wright State - Billy Donlon (47-41, third season).

Series: The Phoenix leads 24-23, but Wright State won this season's first meeting 64-53 on Jan. 3 in Dayton, Ohio, and has won five of the last seven meetings.

UWGB update: The Phoenix, which was picked third in the Horizon League preseason poll, is tied for third place with Wright State with just six games remaining. Four of those six games will be at the Resch Center, but three are against teams in the top three. In addition to Wright State, it hosts second-place Detroit (7-3) on Saturday and finishes the season with first-place Valparaiso (8-2) on March 2. The other home game is against last-place UW-Milwaukee (1-8) on Feb. 26. UWGB is 9-1 at home, including 4-0 in home conference games. It's the only team that is undefeated at home in league play. ... UWGB has outrebounded its opponents in all six of its conference wins and in eight of 10 league games. Freshman Jordan Fouse ranks second in the league in rebounding (7.3 per game). ... Senior forward Brennan Cougill snapped a streak of 13 straight missed 3-pointers when he made a 3 late in Saturday's win at Loyola. After shooting 39.7 percent on 3s last year, he's at 17.4 percent this season.

Wright State update: The Raiders have been the surprise of the league after being picked to finish last in the nine-team conference following the departure of its leading scorer, Julius Mays, who transferred to Kentucky. Without him, the Raiders have been better. ... As usual under Donlon, the Raiders are one of the top defensive teams in the league, allowing a league-best 58.0 points per game. ... Wright State is the only team in the conference without a player in the top 14 on the scoring list. Leading scorer Cole Darling (11.4) ranks 15th. ... The Raiders' 62-59 win over Loyola on Monday snapped a three-game losing streak. ... Wright State forced 18 turnovers in the first meeting against UWGB and held Alec Brown to just five points on 1-of-7 shooting. The Raiders rank second in the league in turnover margin (plus-3.6).
